VIRGINIA Woolf's take on gender disparity will be explored from a historical perspective at Horsham Town Hall on Monday.
A production by Sentient Theatres, the story will breathe new life into the history of women and literature in the adaptation of Virginia Woolf's classic 1929 essay - A Room of One's Own.
The one-hour performance is part of the production's regional Victorian tour.
Director Peta Hanrahan said the performance would feature four actors - Anthea Davis, Marissa O'Reilly, Anna Kennedy and Jackson Trickett - who will explore the aspects of Virginia Woolf's mind in conversation with herself and the audience.
Ms Hanrahan said the work would explore ideas from the essay to present-day audiences, while keeping Woolf's language intact and charming humour alive.
She said she came across the essay when she was 27. Despite many years of experience in theatre and drama, she said the story appealed to her in a way that no other story did.
"It talked to me about the experiences and the feelings I had, that I didn't have the articulation to express," she said.
Ms Hanharan's Victorian tour follows a sold-out premiere season in 2016.
"This is the second time we have produced this show. We sold out a whole season of 14 shows, in just two days," Ms Hanrahan said.
"We are thrilled to be able to perform in regional areas, and make sure it's available for those who may not have the opportunity to go to cities, to watch the show."
Ms Hanharan hoped the play would be conversation starter in the community.
"People might be intimidated by the subject matter, but it's a gentle way of talking about gender disparity," she said.
Horsham Town Hall marketing officer Charee Smith said the performance would be a unique experience for the audience.
"We want to encourage everyone to come and have a great experience. We see this piece of theatre as a showcase - we have four incredibly gifted actors and storytellers who really show the diverse range of the story of the essay that Virginia wrote," she said.
"It's a contemporary theatre piece, that would relate from a young woman to an elderly person. It gives a strong message and we do need to honour what was written in the past and celebrate our future as women."
Ms Smith said tickets were priced from $15 and available by phoning 5382 9555 or via www.horshamtownhall.com.au
